What three words describe you best?

ZERO, ZERO, ZERO.

This was the answer Zosia gave to one of the questions in her application to the Academy of the Future. Sadly, she must have heard those words so often that in her mind they became true.

We are here to help Children like her – without self-confidence and with low self-esteem. Thanks to their individual weekly meetings with a Tutor Children start to discover their own worth and potential. They learn how to overcome relationship obstacles all on their own. They recognize their strengths. They become ready to enter their adult life with their heads held high and without fear. They are ready to realise their dreams – all thanks to the support of our Benefactors.

You can also help. Believe in the Child.

By sponsoring the Academy of the Future you can give a Child a better future.

About the Academy

The Academy of the Future helps children who do not believe in themselves and suffer from low self-esteem. We bolster their self-confidence and help them develop their strengths through weekly meetings with an individual Tutor.

The goal of the Academy is to help the children overcome their difficulties by themselves and look towards the future with hope. We want them to realize their potential, their dreams and aspirations.

How do we help the children?

1

By collaborating with schools, we reach out to Children who struggle with their course work, have relationship issues or suffer from low self-esteem.

2

Every such Child is appointed a personal Tutor – a Volunteer, who meets them once a week for an individual session.

3

The aim of the Tutor is to recognize what the true reason for the Child’s difficulties is and to find a solution together with the Child. Then, together they try to develop the strengths of the child.

4

The Child is guaranteed individual attention with the work being carried out according to the tried and tested methodology developed by the Academy.

5

The achievements of the Child, both big and small, are then entered into the Record Book of Success funded by the Benefactor.

You too can help change a Child’s story. Help together with the Academy.

You can also help. Believe in the Child.

The Benefactor plays an important role in the Academy. They support an chosen Child and watch how the Child changes thanks to the Benefactor’s involvement (also financial - through the funding of the Record Book of Success). Benefactor’s support sends an important message to the Child that there is someone who believes in them. This notion gives the Child additional motivation.

As many as 71% of the Academy’s new pupils have low self-esteem and do not believe in their own capabilities. The Benefactors’ support has already allowed us to help 15,000 pupils since 2003. The 2020/2021 program alone will provide help to 1900 Children.

You can help too - support the Academy of the Future, please.
